Now they have a confused user base and refuse to listen to them. With the Alexa ranking dropping for the forum, I wouldn't be surprised if some users migrate here honestly.

I've ventured back there a few times, but get a virus warning each time. Combined with various other intrusions/clutter, the new format is awful IMO. After posting there for almost 20 years, it really does seem like the end of a once great site.

Thankfully we have SSP here, which I hope never goes down the same route.
